This was most skilfully delivered, drawing out from us our knowledge about the treaty before outlining more of the detail of the history, and clearly identifying the resulting intergenerational trauma and ongoing racism experienced by Māori people. And all in an open manner, without blame, and inviting us to reflect on and take this knowledge and insight into our daily work. I greatly appreciated their directness and heart.
Mary Potter Hospice has broadened the reach of participants for our Treaty and Tikanga Day to include our partners across the health sector and the community. The purpose is to widen people’s exposure to a Māori environment on the marae and to open their perspectives and understanding when working with Māori at end of life.
We start with introductory concepts of Kaupapa (values) and Tikanga (practice), look at the historical context of the Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the Treaty of Waitangi) and its place in current health policy. We will reflect upon the sector’s Treaty approach in recent years, as well as exploring how we can turn insight into action in practise. This will include discussions on racism within our own environments.
